Company Overview:

Datafisher is a company that has a strong background in online corporate training. Because the market is shifting, Datafisher has shifted from pure project-based services to cloud-based SaaS services. Datafisher works mainly with the top 100 companies in the Nordic region. Our mission is to make both change and doing the right thing easier for our clients’ personnel and stakeholders through digital and measurable training & communication. Therefore, we aim to apply and develop cutting-edge technology and techniques to help our clients to better manage change and to support doing the right thing!


We are located in the center of Helsinki in one of the most exciting and developing surroundings in Finland. We are a multicultural company, and our office language is English. We do not care where you come from – whether the East or West, North or South – but we are interested in where you are willing to go with us. We do not believe in stereotypes, and we want to be positively surprised. If you are willing to be part of an exciting and fulfilling journey supporting a Finnish small company (we are less than 10) to pivot, grow and go international, and if you find that these responsibilities and skills describe who you are, then we are the right place for you.
